early ultrasounds are usually within 3 days.
now, are your periods regular?
yes my periods are regular
and you're certain the first day of your last period was 29 nov?
yes, I am positive that it was the 29th or the 30th and I am positive that my last day was december 2nd because I know what I did and when due to events
so there is basically no way you conceived on the 3rd or 4th
that means you conceived around the 13th.
so why would the ultrasound lady say that and how could I be 7weeks and some days now
ok..I thought you said she told you that you were about 5 weeks.
what was the due date she have you?
she did tell me that I was 5weeks but that was on January 6, 2013 when I went to the hospital
that's what I thought
that means you would have conceived around the 13th
you have to remember that pregnancy dating is from the first day of your last menstrual period
so normally conception occurs about 2 weeks after the first day of a period...
and so, you are technically 3 weeks pregnant when conception occurs
so what could have happened with the ultrasound for her to assume that i had to conceive on the 3rd of 4th
sorry 2 weeks..
I don't understand that
I think she meant to say 13th or 14th
so on a normal 28 day cycle
a woman ovulates around day14
if she doesn't conceive she will have a period in 2 weeks.
if conception occurs (2 weeks after the first day of her period) she will miss the next period and the test will be positive.
that's when conception would have occured.
and, that means it's most likely the partner from the 10th who is the father.
That's the most likely. DNA testing would be the conclusive test.
okay so basically there is no possible way at all it happened before the 10th
There's always a chance around the 10th, but very unlikely before that.
the reason is ovulation can vary a few days and sperm can live in the female genital tract for several days.
that's why I have to say most likely the 10th or later
okay I understand that and I did sleep with the one on the 10th after the 10th also so it happened around the 13th or 14th as the ovulation chart shows
yes...and that's most likely the father.
the sperm could easily live for 3 or 4 days in the female genital tract.
so was the ultrasound lady wrong or is the ultrasound is just off by 2weeks
no..I think everything lines up.
I think she simply mispoke and meant to say the 13th of 14th
basically...everything lines up with your last menstrual period...
being around 5 weeks on 6Jan by ultrasound means conception occured around the 13th
ok...does that clear it up for you?
yes, I really appreciate it! I was just trying to be sure before I made any decisions
how long do I have to have an abortion
if I want to
in most states it's 20 weeks
if I have an abortion can I still have kids in the future
okay thank you so very much I really appreciate your help
